System-config-display does not change the resolution in xorg.conf

Description of problem:
Changing the resolution is system-config-display does not change the resolution
of the X server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run system-config-display
2. Change display size from 1600x1200 to 1280x800
3. Press OK
4. Log out and log in
The display size stays the same. The /etc/X11/xorg.conf has no mention of the
The display size changes. The Display SubSection with the desired mode is
written to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
I had to manually add:
Viewport 0 0
Modes "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
S-c-d did detect the 1280x800 after the manual change. But it would still not
change the resolution.
BTW, bug 203220 and 205155 sounds very similar.
Fixed as of rhpxl 0.35-1. Please test and reopen if this is still an issue for you.
